Michael Kopech (hamstring) picks up the win in return

Chicago White Sox pitcher Michael Kopech (3-0) allowed one while striking out none across a scoreless inning to earn the win during Thursday’s 8-5 victory over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech (hamstring) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list on Tuesday. He threw a scoreless inning and picked up the win on Thursday in his first appearance since returning from the IL. The 25-year-old owns a 1.67 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 45 strikeouts across 32 1/3 innings in 2021. Kopech continues to pitch well as a starter or reliever and should be rostered in deep-league formats.

Michael Kopech (hamstring) reinstated from the 10-day IL

The Chicago White Sox have reinstated pitcher Michael Kopech from the 10-day injured list on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech landed on the 10-day injured list in late May with a strained left hamstring. He made excellent progress through a simulated game last Friday and was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday. The White Sox right-hander owns a 1.72 ERA and 0.99 WHIP across 31 1/3 innings in 2021. Aaron Bummer (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Michael Kopech (hamstring) shows progress during simulated game

Chicago White Sox manager Tony La Russa said he saw "excellent progress" from Michael Kopech during his sim game on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

The plan is for Kopech to throw another one Monday. The White Sox will then determine from these sim games whether he needs a rehab assignment at Charlotte or not. Kopech was placed on the injured list back on May 31.

Michael Kopech (hamstring) is throwing on flat ground

White Sox pitcher Michael Kopech started throwing on flat ground then tossed a bullpen session on Tuesday. Kopech hasn't pitched since May 26.

Fantasy Impact

Through 31 1/3 innings, Kopech had a 1.72 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, 36% strikeout rate, and 8.8% walk rate. When he returns, Kopech could provide quality ratios, strikeouts, and some wins, especially if he ends up in a long-relief role or makes five-inning starts. Keep an eye on Kopech in 15-team leagues.

Michael Kopech (hamstring) throws off the mound Tuesday

White Sox pitcher Michael Kopech (hamstring) threw off the mound on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Kopech threw off the mound for the first time since injuring his hamstring on May 26. He is progressing well in his recovery and could rejoin the White in late June. Kopech has been terrific as a starter or reliever this season, owning a 1.72 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and a 12.9 K:9 across 31 1/3 innings. Fantasy managers should continue to stash Kopech on their roster for now.
